For all those who wonder, "Just who is Donald Trump?",
The Truth About Trump supplies the answer.
Drawing upon exclusive interviews and exhaustive research, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Michael D'Antonio presents Trump's full story, from his beginnings as a businessman to his juggernaut presidential campaign. Along the way, D'Antonio charts the successes and failures, scandals and triumphs, and relentless pursuit of money and fame that have made Trump who he is today. D'Antonio also details the origins of the Trump family fortune, Trump's history of using politics to get ahead, and how he has mastered the media to turn publicity into power.
First published in 2015, and now updated to cover Trump's rise to political prominence, The Truth About Trump is an unsparing, eye-opening account of the life and career of the most talked-about man in America.

Very well done. Even-handed, thorough, clearly written. Kept my interest all the way through. I feel like I understand the phenomenon that is Donald Trump much better than before. I was concerned that this would be a hatchet job, but it wasn't.
I still don't much care for the man or his views on many issues, but I understand him better.
I learned several things about Donald Trump, many of which are to be admired. I also gained some insight into how he built his fortune. Mr. Trump possesses both positive attributes and significant flaws - which most of us do. In his case, however, it all gets magnified by his forceful personality. All in all, a "good listen"
I am only a neighbor who lived for several years in the USA and learned as much as I could about the sociopolitical dynamics.
I hope your country can survive this presidency and mine, Canada, can minimize the damage.
Best: Discussed Trumps life events I was unaware of.LEAST: Presented every negative detail that the Author could spin to make it appear much worse than it actually was. Author omitted most of the positive contributions Trump has made to the business world and his insightful political/military forecasts.
NEVER. HE'S A POLITICAL HACK for Dems
Yes., most of the big hollywood libs would love to be part of this biased story. Michael Moore would love to direct it!
The book's title is an oxymoron. "Truth about Trump?" Give me a break.P.S. I am not a fan of Trump but this book was was not about finding truth!
"Honest, balanced look at the life and times Trump"
A fabulous, well balanced look at the highs & lows of Mr Donald J Trump.
It gives a detailed look of his life and that of his parents and Grand parents.
if you are for or against Mr Trump or just curios to why he is who he is. this is ESSENTIAL reading!
I found this an interesting listen. I didn't know much about Donald Trump's life before so I learned a fair bit. I find it incredible that people like Trump and Elon Musk have lived such elaborate and sensational lives they could actually be fictional. I think it was a fairly neutral account of Trump's life. After finishing it, I don't think he has many redeeming qualities.
"The best Trump book"
This book provides a wealth of details about Trump, informative and entertaining. Brilliant.
Way better than the making of Donald trump and trump nation.
